Repaired knee that was unstable for 31 years

Tore my ACL 31 years ago and told I had a 50-50 chance of a successful repair. When I reinjured it last year Dr. Dellaero successfully replaced it and repaired meniscus tears 10 weeks before my son's wedding. I was able to dance with my son.

Doesn't get any better

Dr. Dellaero did my knee surgery and everything was just as you would expect. Great pain management, listens and is concerned about how you are doing before and after surgery, and helps you to meet your goals. I had a great recovery and it was definitely due to the coordinated and compassionate care that I received. I tell everyone about him.
